|Comments||Bill Collings makes a lot of really wonderful, top-quality instruments. They look great, are very comfortable, have tone for days, and the build quality is exceptional. This Collings SJ Indian has the fullness and presence of a dreadnaught but without the boominess and more midrange; it’s rich and evenly balanced with crisp trebles and effective representation across the frequency spectrum.|

|Playability/Action||This guitar plays very well as stock, and I’m having a hard time putting it down long enough to finish writing this. Naturally, we’ll set it up to the needs of the player. There’s plenty of room on the saddle. This guitar has a fully-adjustable truss rod, accessed through the soundhole with a specially shaped key.|
